QPR’s #WalkFromHome campaign has moved to within £4,000 of reaching its sponsorship target after donations passed the £8,000 mark on Saturday.
The campaign, which encourages people to sponsor their own piece of exercise and then nominate three friends to do the same, has received a fantastic response from supporters, staff members and players past and present.
All money raised through #WalkFromHome will go towards the Tiger Cubs – QPR’s official football team for children and young people with Down’s syndrome.
#WalkFromHome was introduced as a replacement for the Tiger Cubs’ next annual charity walk, #TigerFeet11, which had to be postponed in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The money raised through the annual Tiger Feet walks are vital for the Tiger Cubs team, as the funds are used for the team to travel to special tournaments and to purchase new equipment.
Speaking on Monday, QPR Trust CEO Andy Evans said: “We’re determined to beat our sponsorship target of £12,500 and I've seen lots of pictures of QPR fans, staff and players on their walks.
“Our annual Tiger Feet walks are always so important, in terms of the money they raise for the Tigers Cub team; it allows us to keep the team running and take them to special events and purchase new equipment.
“If #WalkFromHome could help us raise a similar amount of money to previous Tiger Feet walks then that would be fantastic.”
